Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
The front 3 plugs are removed in minutes naturally. It is the back three that are difficult. By driving the front tires on blocks you can slide underneath the minivan and reach the drivers side rear plug as well as the middle plug next to it. You may scratch your hands and arms a bit, but it can be done. The rear plug on the passengers side is the tough one. I moved the Alternator bracket after you remove the serpentine belt, which you don't actually have to remove completely, but you can remove three bolts, then loosen the one directly to the alternator and push the bracket upwards out of the way. Even with this opening the difficulty I had was having enough room to move a swivel socket wrench enough to loosen the plug. What finally worked was a pipe at the end of the ratchet for leverage. If you have a spark plug socket with a built in swivel it will make the job much simpler and a few extra extensions. Your going to want to use platinum plugs and anti seize so you can replace the plugs after 100,000 miles if you keep it that long. You can get to the plugs by the top, but your going to have to loosen the top intake manifold, throttle body, alternator, and a few more parts. Good luck and hope this helps. Be safe friend.
